I made the @helen_goh_bakes pear and cinnamon tea cake from last week’s @goodweekendmag . It’s the perfect afternoon pick-me-up in between all the weekend juggle of kids sports and lifts. And how gorgeous is this gold-tinged cake plate that was part of a tea set my great granny received as a wedding gift way back in the early 1900s.
Today was spent in the beautiful Autumn sunshine in Launceston visiting the farm lands of Premium Fresh Tasmania and learning how @aussieonions are grown in this unique climate next to the Bass Strait. It was a spectacular day spent with like minded dietitians and chefs showcasing this humble hero of a fabulous vegetable that is packed full of nutrition (mood boosting vitamins, anti-ageing antioxidants, prebiotic fibre just to name a few). After our farm tour we were treated to a scrumptious onion feast at @stillwatertasmania restaurant and a live demo on how to make pickled onions with bonito flakes. Well done to the team from @bitecommunications and @straight_to_the_source for another fabulous Aussie Onion farm tour.
Make your own sushi poke bowls- perfect for a hot Autumn night. Miso-glazed salmon with loads of veg for everyone to pick their preferences - tomato, cucumber, corn, broad beans, spring onions, carrot and avocado. Topped with dried shallots, pickled ginger, black sesame seeds and a kewpie dressing.
Caramelised red onion tart with plump summer baby tomatoes, goats cheese and thyme. Served with a simple garden salad. I slow cooked 4 large red onions as they shrink so much once cooked. This is a whopping 8 serves of veg (1/2 onion = one veg serve) and together with this salad, I think everyone in the fam got a good dose of veges for dinner tonight 👊
This is called a ‘let’s see what I can find in my fridge and pantry’ lunch. Leftover quinoa, pan-fried haloumi, rocket leaves, baby Roma tomatoes, sliced avocado and a tin of @edgellau snack chickpeas. Finished off with a drizzle of wasabi kewpie and extra virgin olive oil. Sometimes it’s just a simple exercise of combining a few different ingredients to create a wholesome meal that includes most of the food groups.
